Which lines and wrinkles on your face do you want to reduce?

Many of us have lines or wrinkles on our face don’t we? Lines or wrinkles give the impression to others that we are getting older, yet more and more people are now finding that botox in hertfordshire is able to help reduce them of these lines and wrinkles.

Over the years I have attended many courses on the use of botox.

As you read this, notice how many areas this simple technique is able to help with.

  1. Frown
  2. Crows feet (around the eyes)
  3. Eye Brow Lift
  4. Eye opening
  5. Bunny Lines (around the nose)
  6. Smokers lines (around the upper lip)
  7. Lift the corners of your mouth
  8. Gummy smile
  9. Nose to mouth lines
  10. Chin softening
  11. Jowels (around corner of the jaw)
  12. Neck
  13. Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating from under the arms)

Botox® is a routine technique that takes only a few minutes to do, yet has results which last for many months, so while you read this now notice which lines you would like to reduce or remove or take a glance in a mirror and notice which ones seem worse.

I would recommend. Harry Singh. For botox , he did a good job in administering the appropriate amount for the designated area and. A good adjustment follow up in the following two weeks, that is an important factor when choosing your aesthetic practitioner follow up and re adjustment after 2 weeks not everyone offers this inclusive package.

aesthetics Dermal Fillers Post Treatment Advice

Dr Harry Singh gives some advice and what to expect after you have had dermal fillers in hertfordshire.

 

Following your treatment it is important not to touch the treated area or apply makeup for at least 6 hours. This is to reduce the risk of injection site infection. Please bear in mind that immediately after treatment some common anticipated injection related reactions can occur. These reactions are temporary and typically resolve within 7-14 days. However in order to allow the skin to recover more efficiently the following advice may be proven useful:

 

Redness or Swelling

 

A clean, light make-up can be applied to cover any redness after the initial 6 hour recovery period.

 

Do not expose the treated area to intense heat (sunbathing, sun beds, saunas, steam rooms etc) or to extreme cold 1 week following treatment. A clean cool pack can be applied directly to the treated area on the day of treatment to help with any bruising.

 

Bruising

If you are using Aspirin or similar medication be aware that the likelihood of bruising may increase.

 

It has been reported that Arnica* cream and/or tablets help to minimise bruising. Arnica cream can be applied directly to bruising and may help the bruise to resolve more quickly. Make-up can be applied to cover bruising following the initial 6 hour post treatment period.

 

Discomfort or Itching

 

Following treatment the area can feel tender from the injection. Non-prescription analgesia* can be taken. Following treatment the area may feel slightly itchy for 7-14 days. Non prescription anti-histamines* may reduce itching.

 

Lip Treatment

Due to sensitivity of the lip swelling following treatment can sometimes last for up to 7-14 days and during this time the lips may appear to be slightly uneven. The result directly following treatment should not be seen as the final result.

 

A clean cool pack can be applied directly to the area to soothe the lips and help to reduce swelling.

 

If you have a history of cold sores, which you should advise Dr Singh, there is a risk due to the insertion of a needle into the skin where the virus is present, but dormant that the virus may be activated. This may cause a first outbreak of a cold sore or another eruption from a previous one.

 

 

* Prior to taking any medication to help reduce any of the above anticipated side effects you must ensure with your doctor or pharmacist hat it is safe for you to do so.

Dermal fillers case study

Treatment Increase fullness and redefine borders with Restylane Lipp

Name Katey

Age 26

dermal fillers hertfordshire rs lip aft copy

 

 

What prompted you to have the treatment? I have always been unhappy with the small size of my lips, I did not want really big lips but a subtle difference that would look natural. I opted for dermal fillers in Hertfordshire.

Medical History all clear

Assessment Generally the fullness of the patient’s lips was adequate, with maybe a little more fullness being more cosmetically pleasing. Borders of the lips for this young aged patient were ill defined and we wanted to make these more prominent.

Initial treatment After the anaesthetic was placed; 1.ml of Restylane LIpp was used. For the lower lip we emphasised the body and for the upper lip concentrated more on the border.

Follow up At the 2 week review, the patient requested a fuller lower lip and more body on the upper lip, within reason the patients request were accepted and treated.

Patient’s comments I can’t stop looking at my lips, I love them. It is exactly the result I wanted.

Dr Singh’s comments a result that may not appear in any text book or journal but one that has restored the patient’s confidence. This is the business we are in – restoring patient’s confidence and what they are happy with maybe slightly different to what we think.

Ban non-medics from giving Botox®

Only trained doctors, nurses and dentists should provide non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as Botox®, say surgeons.

Currently people such as beauticians with no medical training can administer anti-wrinkle Botox® injections, even though it is a potent neurotoxin.

The Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) wants to put an end to “Botox® parties” and rogue traders.

The government has been assessing whether tougher laws are needed.

Lawless

NHS medical director, Sir Bruce Keogh, has been conducting a review into the cosmetic industry and will report back to government in March.

We have serious concerns that not all those who offer cosmetic procedures are adequately qualified, or that patients are getting accurate information prior to treatment”

 

The RCS makes several recommendations, including a proviso that anyone planning to have a cosmetic procedure should have a thorough psychological assessment beforehand.

Only those who have medically recognised qualifications and training and should carry out cosmetic procedures, such as breast surgery, liposuction and Botox® treatment, and in a registered clinic with resuscitation equipment on hand in the event of an emergency, it recommends.

Because of the lack of regulation, it is difficult to gauge the scale of the issue. Most cosmetic procedures are carried out privately, rather than on the NHS.

Estimates suggest that in 2011, there were 669,711 surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures carried out in the UK. BAAPS own figures show 43,172 surgical procedures were carried out by BAAPS members in 2011.

According to the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service (IHAS), about 200,000 anti-wrinkle injections, which includes Botox® and dermal fillers, are carried out in the UK each year.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are products injectable into the dermis to reverse the effects of ageing, including wrinkles, and loss of volume in the underlying tissues causing furrows and lines. They are also used to enhance natural features such as lips or cheeks for a more youthful, fuller appearance.  Fillers are injected under the epidermis at varying levels according to the type and result required. They can be used for lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes (with care), nose and forehead and also to enhance the lips by giving them greater volume and a fuller appearance and by defining the lip line. Some fillers are also used for facial contouring such as cheek enhancement. Dermal fillers are made from a variety of materials and the effect can last from temporary, lasting for about 6 months, medium term, for about 18 months or permanent.

 

 

Types of dermal fillers in hertfordshire

 

Hyaluronic acid fillers

 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers require no allergy testing prior to their use and work by plumping out lines and folds and hydrating the skin.

 

HA fillers are laboratory produced and are biodegradable. Some are derived from bacterial fermentation whilst others require an animal source, Restylane is probably the most popular and tested hyaluronic products, they are produced from bacteria in a laboratory and have a duration of 4-6 months.

 

 

Non-HA Fillers

 

Well known non-HA products include Radiesse

 

Poly-L-lactic acid

Sculptra is the only poly-L-lactic acid based product currently available in the UK. It is classed as a volumiser, rather than a filler and is injected into the deeper subcuticular areas to stimulate the formation of collagen over 4 to 8 weeks.

 

Autologous Fat

This is fat harvested from the patient’s stomach or thighs, processed and injected back into the treatment area. Administration generally involves 3 to 4 injections and evidence suggests that facial injection of autologous fat can stimulate the growth of fat and subcutaneous tissue in the area of administration. Treatment with autologous fat has a variable longevity but produces excellent results.

 

Calcium hydroxylapatite

The relatively new product, Radiesse, consists of calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in gel (carboxymethylcellulose). This is a non-permanent filler designed to last approximately 2 years. Once injected the CaHA particles form a scaffold-like structure allowing the patient’s tissues to grow around and between. The gel carrier dissolves within a few months and the particles are metabolised over a longer period. Calcium hydroxylapatite is a normal constituent of bone so it should not elicit a chronic inflammatory or immune response.

 

 

Side effects of dermal fillers

 

The most common side effects associated with the use of all dermal fillers are injection-related, such as: bleeding, tenderness or pain, redness, bruising, or swelling. These effects generally last, on average, 2 to 6 days. As with all procedures that involve injection through the skin there is a risk of infection. In a small number of cases there is an inflammatory response or other long-term problem. Please see the manufacturer’s literature of each product for further information.  It is imperative that fillers are injected at the right level (depth). If a product is injected at a too superficial level, some patients may report a greyish tinge.

CASE STUDY – ANTI WRINKLE UPPER THIRD OF FACE

Treatment Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles with botox hertfordshire

Name Amanda

Age 28

botox hertfordshire before ac aft btxfr

 

What are your concerns and what prompted you to have the treatment? My husband commented that I always looked angry and in my job interacting with people this was not what I wanted to come across like

Dr Singh’s Assessment: client has a strong pull down of central frown muscles and not much laterally, therefore client will require less product dose laterally.

Initial treatment: placement of muscle relaxant in frown and forehead area’s

Follow up: at client review appointment after 2 weeks, top up in frown muscle

Client’s comments: I am absolutely delighted with the results and it was exactly what I wanted, I will definitely be coming back to continue with the treatment. Dr Singh was very confident which was reassuring & he had a very gentle approach and I hardly felt anything at all and the best part is that none of my friends or family have noticed that I have had botox, just stated my face looked younger.

Dr Singh’s comments: respect the client’s patient’s wishes and address their concerns and use in conjunction with your clinical judgement. This client was very keen to eradicate any sign of her frown lines and at the clients very 1st treatment I always prefer to under-dose rather than over-dose, so the clients 2 week review appointment I advised her an extra top up of the product would be beneficial. By balancing the muscle dynamics and injection in the forehead, we maintain the eye brow position so thus giving her a more natural look.
